my $800 powerstroke purchase

well guys here it is, i picked this truck up a couple days ago for 800 bucks. as far as everything goes, i feel like i made a good purchase although it does need a new PCM. its always been an arizona truck so there is no rust and body damage is very minimal. ive gotten it to crank over by jumping the starter solenoid on the fender but need to hunt down a new PCM to see if the thing runs. for those who dont know, its a 1994 PSD 4x4 5 speed with 160k on it. clean arizona title. keep a look out for this truck because it may be getting parted out soon.

well im getting a pcm for it tomorrow from a friends truck to see if i can get it running. if i can get it running its likely that i will keep it, if not ill sell it for around 1000-1500? would that seem fair? i would still be making a couple bucks and theres still alot of room for profit i would think.

i checked the turbo out today, theres no shaft play and the blades seem to be in good shape, no sign of it being dusted. i also drained the oil which come to find out was a good choice because it was about the same consistancy of bubble gum. but still, no signs of debris or metal in it, probably like this from sitting for over a year. still need to take the oil filter off and check in there and then go buy new supplies. i pulled the fuel filter out and it looked brand new, but upon second glance i noticed the fuel in the bowl was red. so i called up the previous owner to ask him about it and he said that the truck hasnt been registered on the road for over 10 years, worked as a farm truck so he ran red dye in it. which would also make me understand the low miles, because the truck didnt have to travel far to bring the horses feed and back. and would also explain the cow manure stained carpet.

anyways just needs a good cleaning up and put back together. not to bad of a task and just keeping my fingers crossed hoping that the engine fires.
